Examining the interplay of centrally articulated and locally developed commemorations, Maria Bucurs study engages monumental sites of memory, local funerary markers, rituals, and street names as well as autobiographical writings, novels, oral narratives, and film. This book reveals the ways in which a communitys religious, ethnic, economic, regional, and gender traditions shaped local efforts at memorializing its war dead.
